Join Fu Qiumeng Fine Art this Saturday for a special artist talk and painting demonstration by contemporary painter Zhang Xiaoli, whose exhibition Whimsical Maze is currently on view through February 3rd.

This unique event explores the Eastern tradition of Gongbi brushwork, elegant gardens and the symbolic language found in the Manual of the Mustard Seed Garden, as well as in Zhang Xiaoli’s work. Featuring works on silk and paper, the event offers a dive into a parallel world of ethereal wonders, the creative process and the history of Landscape painting.

Starting at 11:00am, Zhang Xiaoli will introduce the historical development of Green and Blue Landscapes 青绿山水, revisit classic masterpieces such as Gu Kaizhi’s The Nymph of the Luo River 《洛神赋图》卷 and Wang Ximeng’s A Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains 《千里江山图》卷 and present her Lego Landscape series. She will also uncover Taoist influences, Chinese Feng-Shui and mystical elements in her work, as well as offer insights into the materials and techniques of the Gongbi painting method. This event is free and open to the public.

Then at 2:30pm, the artist will perform a live demonstration of traditional Chinese Green and Blue Landscape techniques, along with her signature Lego Mountain and Stone techniques. Participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the serene beauty of Gongbi painting. This hands-on session encourages attendees to explore and experiment with ink art mediums under the guidance of Zhang Xiaoli. This exclusive event is ticketed at $12 and limited to 18 people.
